Isabella Selder plays Cello Suite No. 2 BWV 1008 I Prelude by J. S. Bach on a 1960 Hermann Hauser II

People usually love Bach’s Cellow Suite No. 1 Prelude but I’ve always loved the 2nd Suite’s Prelude. It’s in a minor key which always tugs at my heart and is just the fantastic in its scope and depth. Isabella really nails it with a guitar in this performance.
